Lumi is the dominant player globally in the provision of software and real-time audience engagement technology to facilitate Annual General Meetings for Companies (whether listed or non-listed), Associations, Legislative Bodies, Membership Organizations, and Partnerships. Based on proprietary, patented technology, Lumi provides software, hardware, and services that assist registrars or event organizers to register delegates and provide live, secure polling, Q&A management services, and relevant reporting.

Lumi is headquartered in Hampshire, UK, where central functions including finance, product development, and marketing are based, but has offices in 11 countries across Europe, APAC, The Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. Highly differentiated in the majority of markets where it is active, it benefits from extremely strong, experienced, and renowned MDs who head up each in-country team.

"Lumi's depth of knowledge in their industry is unrivalled."

Rae Rohm

"We have used Lumi for our audience polling needs for several events to gather feedback from our conference delegates regarding their technology issues. Lumi’s customer service has been outstanding for each event. The staff handles all the pre-planning work, we simply supply the questions and they do the rest. The onsite staff is always professional, reliable and very accommodating with any last-minute changes, and the handheld devices are extremely easy to use. Our conference delegates have provided very positive feedback about this new interactive feature, and the results that we have gathered will go a long way in providing added value to our research and event content for Gartner clients."

"As representatives of the meetings and events industry, we were eager to utilize the event app, Lumi Show, for our Board of Directors conference. Our board members enjoyed the ease of checking agendas and speaker bios from their own devices. An extra level of engagement was facilitated with the ability to upload and share photos from the social events, utilize the live ‘Join In’ message board, and also to be able to download each other’s contacts for future connections."

San Francisco Travel

"We recently used Lumi for our house of delegates elections. We were impressed by the instant response time of the voting results – they were much quicker than other systems we’ve used previously. The producer on site was also very helpful, always one step ahead and doing what needed to be done before being asked. With the capabilities of the Lumi system, we decided to add in some survey questions along with the elections this year to get attendee feedback on the meeting format; those responses were a very useful gauge in deciding what we should keep or change. Overall, working with Lumi was a great experience, it would be difficult to think of anything we would do differently to make the voting process better next year!"

APMA

"The Lumi devices and services are awesome and add so much value to a meeting. The surveys make the meeting so much more fun and interactive, and allow you to collect valuable information. The microphone feature is great too, they work so well and people love to use them. It definitely adds a huge convenience factor."
